Seeking Justice for the Victims of Traffic Accidents and Their Families
The risks of car travel were tragically demonstrated by a recent crash in Coral Springs that claimed the lives of two 21-year-old women. The victims were traveling along the Sawgrass Freeway in early morning darkness when their vehicle was struck head-on by a car that was being driven east in a westbound lane. One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene and the other later succumbed in a hospital. The wrong-way driver, a 20-year-old woman, was hospitalized with injuries.
The two women were among the more than 100 people who are killed every day in traffic crashes in the U.S. In addition to the thousands killed, millions suffer varying degrees of injury every year in such accidents. Even the best drivers may not be able to avoid an accident caused by a wrong-way driver or someone who is operating a vehicle recklessly or while intoxicated. Those who are the victims of a Fort Lauderdale auto accident and their families may be entitled to compensation, but they will require legal assistance, the type provided by Florida injury lawyer group of Abramowitz, Pomerantz & Morehead.
There are few experiences more painful than losing a loved one. The pain can be magnified when one realizes that the death resulted from the negligence of someone else. Those who have experienced such a loss can be placed in such a state of confusion that they are unable decide what course of action to follow. A Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer can help these individuals understand their legal options and can also guide them through the legal process.
Compensation can be sought by the families of those killed for many reasons, including the loss of companionship and related emotional suffering. Unfortunately, insurance companies will often place their own interests above those of their policy holders, and certainly above the interests of the other party. They may use various legal or procedural methods in an attempt to delay or block the awarding of damages. A Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer can under the circumstances be the best advocate for the victims and their families.
